Is this call EV+ ? I have no notes on the guy shoving, chip leader is TAG, and the short stack is a solid reg. I'm holding KK, and Im tired and cant be boshed to do the maths. I suspect the BB is only calling with 77+ and aj, aq and ak.

played at "Table #1" for USD TC from 2012-09-10 19:40 until 2012-09-10 19:40

Seat 3: Aeroboero (3,575 in chips) 
Seat 5: Makuha88 (2,035 in chips) 
Seat 8: chipfire227 (1,920 in chips) 
Seat 9: ChildInTime5 (1,470 in chips) 

ChildInTime5 posts small blind (75), Aeroboero posts big blind (150),

Makuha88 raises to 2,035 and is all-in, chipfire227 calls 1,920 and is all-in, ChildInTime5 folds, Aeroboero folds.

Sorry, should also have confirmed its the bubble of a $20 D2N.

Must be fine.

BB shouldn't be calling with that range.  He should just sit back and collect his profit after you two clash

Yeah I roughly calculated with the chip stacks as they were before the cards were dealt I had to be slightly shorter than 1/2 to cash, meaning I need to be 66/34, but then I usually add on a few per cent for the half dozen or so hands the BB might call with.

With blinds 75/150 it seemed a strange shove first to act, even four handed. You never know what to put them on. Ace seven as it turns out.

You are right about the calling range of the BB, with two almost identical stacks all in ahead of him only the split pot will stop him collecting, my observation was based more on experience than maths. Are there actually any hands the BB should call with ?

A lot of them do call though in that spot, presumably the 12 tabling rayke monkeys who only have time to look at their cards and not analyse the stack sizes.

Yeah I mostly play on I-poker, even though I aint keen on the software, but I  still play a bit on here. Like you I never play more than 4 tables. Been running horrifically below EV for about 6 months,but its just variance, and was due a bad run.

i played a few stt  games last night during the soccer, and every time i opened the info tab the big blackjack sidegame needed hiding, when i had small tables it made it impossible to see the game info.

is there a easy way to hide this without having to do it manually on each game?
i'm sur ei didnt need to hide em in the past.

It used to save the settings from one  visit to the next, so if you had it hidden when you logged out it would be hidden when you logged back in. I havent played here for a few days but it does seem to be omnipresent now. It also pops back up if you re-size tables. Very irritating, but a reminder that in their ideal world we would all be arcade/casino punters.
